Samsung CF791 ultrawide curved gaming monitor review

 

Stellar contrast ratio ; Slick design ; Luxuriantly large display ; Excellent picture quality ; Extremely accurate color after calibration

Video content can be hard to find ; Speakers are sub-par

Ultrawide curved monitors are impressive to behold. They just look great. They’re aesthetically pleasing, they create a luxuriant workspace that supplants typical two-monitor setups, and they’re immersive. Size and scope often compensate for any...

Samsung CF791 review

 

I have enough ambivalence about curved monitors to fill a 34-inch screen. For games? No question it's good. For movies and work, though, it gives pause. Most movies use a 16:9 or 16:10 aspect ratio so at best they float in the middle of a 21:9 screen....

The Samsung CF791 34-inch curved display is a great size for gaming, and the combination of a 100Hz refresh rate and FreeSync pairs well with midrange Radeon cards. Plus, its color is pleasing.

It only has two USB ports and the integrated stand makes life awkward for VESA mounters.

Big, bright and reasonably accurate, the 34-inch curved Samsung CF791 is a bit expensive for a FreeSync monitor but offers a generous feature set and solid performance for the money if you're a Radeon gamer.

Samsung CF791 review: A stunning quantum dot 34in curved gaming monitor

 

Another fantastic quantum dot curved monitor from Samsung; expensive, but well worth it

Good colour accuracy and contrast ratio ; Dramatic 1500R curvature ; Impressive integrated speakers

Expensive

Its 3,440 x 1440 resolution provides ultra-crisp visuals and, coupled with great colour accuracy and a surprising lack of ghosting and motion blur, it’s suitable for not just the photo editor but also the competitive gamer. In short, Samsung has...

Samsung CF791 34-Inch Curved Widescreen Monitor Review

 

I had been looking into ultra-wide displays for a while and talking with Samsung they said they had just the display for me to check out, it was their CF791 34

– 34-inch with a 1500R curve ; – Quantum Dot technology ; – WQHD (3440×1440) resolution ; – USB 3.0 hub ; – Easiest height adjustment I’ve seen on a display of this size

– None that I found

It has been a real joy using the Samsung CF791 display over the past few weeks. It is not often I am very impressed with a piece of technology, but with the CF791 I am basically like “Samsung take my money”, it really is that good! I feel like Samsung...

Test: Samsung C34F791WQU - Gaming-Bildschirm mit gebogenem Display

 

Der Samsung C34F791WQU ist ein 34-Zoll-Bildschirm im 21:9-Format. Er besticht nicht nur durch sein elegantes Design, auch seine inneren Werte überzeugen. Wir haben den Gaming-Monitor einem ausgiebigen Test unterzogen.

+ sehr gute Bildqualität ; + Curved Monitor ; + 21:9-Bildschirm ; + Gaming-Funktionen

- hoher Stromverbrauch

Samsung C34F791WQU im Test

 

Die Krümmung des C34F791WQU entspricht fast genau der Wölbung des menschlichen Auges. Bringt das ein besseres Seherlebnis? Der Test.

lebendige Farbdarstellung ; gut geeignet für Gaming ; Höhenverstellung (10 cm)

Blickwinkelstabilität ; Farbgenauigkeit

Der Curved-Monitor Samsung C34F791WQU eignet sich ideal für Multimedia-Anwendungen und Spiele. Die nicht ganz optimale Bildqualität stört dabei nicht weiter.
